Muscles Alive! is a neuroscience educational outreach program. It is an extension of research topics and techniques used in the Neuromuscular Function Lab at Colorado State University. The program uses hands-on, kid-friendly equipment to perform experiential demonstrations to teach 4th-12th graders about how their brain communicates with their muscles and how their muscles communicate with their brain. Participants get to see, hear, record, and experience their own brain’s command to the muscle and experience very robust, fun, and attention-getting illusions and phenomena related to reflexes and proprioception (ability to sense the position and orientation and movement of one’s body).
